Family friendly beaches on Ibiza Part 2

Earlier we wrote a post about family friendly beaches. With these we mean beaches where the water is calm, where life guards keep an eye on the little ones or where the beach has soft and fine sand. However, because there are so many we decided to write a ‘family friendly beaches part 2’. So, pack your beach bag and your flip-flops, get your family together and head to one of these family friendly beaches!

Cala Bassa

Cala Bassa has all the ingredients for a family beach: it’s clean and has a Blue Flag certification. The waters are clear and not deep and there is a lot to do when it comes to (water) sports. Restaurants and bars are everywhere and there is a lot of parking space.

Cala Vadella

Cala Vadella is a charming beach is situated on the west coast of Ibiza. The fishermen’s huts are the memories of what used to be a fishermen’s village. Fine sand gently slopes to the sea and therefore offers a long area with shallow waters, which is perfect for children. Yet, this isn’t by far the only thing why families love coming here: both children as well as parents will have a lovely beach day at Cala Vadella.

Playa de Santa Eulalia

The large beach of Santa Eulalia lies in the middle of the centre of Santa Eulalia town. You will find everything you can possibly from a proper beach. It has for instance a beautiful promenade with palm trees, showers on the beach and accessibility for the disabled. The location of this beach offers great opportunities for combining a beach day with some shopping in town.

Cala Llonga

Cala Llonga lies in a touristic area. Everything is on walking distance and at Cala Llonga the locals really know how to pamper tourists. It’s a very large beach with all possible comfort and there even is a playground for children. Supermarkets, restaurants and bars are scattered everywhere.

Port de San Miguel

Situated in the north, this beach is one of the biggest in its range. At Port de San Miguel you can have a lazy beach day, lying on a sun bed while sipping a cold drink. People who’d like some more action can also find here what they need. All sorts of water sports are available and hopping on a glass bottom boat is another fun activity.

Playa des Canar

The beach of Es Canar lies in the lively touristic village with the same name. Therefore everything is on walking distance: shops, restaurants, a children playground and more. You can also take a stroll to the tiny harbour. The beach is a Blue Flag beach so it has all standards which a friendly family beach needs.



Cala d’Hort

A favourite among all who pay Cala D’Hort a visit; it has a special place in our hearts too. It all starts with the steep but beautiful road you need to take to get to Cala d’Hort. This is followed by the magnificent view on Es Vedra, its sister Es Vedranell and the lovely beach with fine sand, cute reedy umbrellas and fantastic restaurants. Last but not least…it all ends with stunning sunsets.

Cala Portinatx

Cala Portinatx is divided into three beaches. They all are lovely and have their own charms, but that is a topic for another blog post. The biggest beach of the three, situated in the middle, has all the standards belonging to a family beach. Its name is S’Arenal Gross and it is a Blue Flag beach and the water is relatively shallow which makes it ideal for children who want to swim.

Cala Gracio

Surrounded by pine trees and rocks and with fishermen’s huts on the background, Cala Gracio is not “only” a beautiful place, but it’s also picture perfect. As an extra bonus you can pay a visit to its sister Cala Gracioneta which is the smaller version of Gracio and which provides a terrific restaurant. When with children, it’s always fun to combine a beach day with a visit to the aquarium, called Cap Blanc.
